Unrestrained concentration of public authority is undesirable for the essence of democracy, society counteracts it the harmful effects through a variety of constitutional and legal instruments, a special place in this regard has the principle of incompatibility of public offices. Domestic legislation enacted this principle at all levels public authority also in the community, and particularly it relates the monocratic executive organs and members of municipal councils, not to mention anything about village administrators. In practice local self-government, there are often cases of mergers of public trust mandates, which may be a source of unnecessary controversy. Clarification of these problems seems to be a complex matter, the solution could find in municipal autonomy granted to the community to shape their own internal system.
